County Clerk Advises College Students and Other Voters on Vote-By-Mail

Union County, NJ – Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi reminds all voters, especially college students impacted by school closures, to update their Vote-by-Mail address if they have moved in recent weeks.

“School closings have forced students to move unexpectedly during the COVID-19 outbreak, and as a result their Vote-by-Mail ballots could get side-tracked to a previous address,” said Ms. Rajoppi. “Keeping your address up to date is the best way to ensure that your voice is heard on Election Day.”

Voters can request a change of address for their Vote-By-Mail ballot by sending an email to the County Clerk’s Elections Division at ucvote@ucnj.org. The email must include their full name, their previous address, and the address where they currently reside.

Under New Jersey state law, any voter can use a Vote-by-Mail ballot. There is no requirement to provide a reason.

Continuing Vote-by-Mail users will receive their ballots automatically. New users can download an application for a Vote-by-Mail ballot online at the County Clerk’s elections website, unioncountyvotes.com.

To request a Vote-by-Mail application by mail, email the Elections Division at ucvote@ucnj.org or call 908-527-4996.
